The Chardonnay grape itself contributes to the wine’s popularity. It is a relatively “low-maintenance” vine that adapts well to a variety of climates, resulting in fairly high yields worldwide. These high yields translate into millions of bottles of Chardonnay wines. As a result, you can buy a decent bottle of Chardonnay for around $10. Check out the producers below to find cheap, consistent Chard vintage after vintage.

Ok, sometimes the Clos du Bois is at $12, but often you can find it at $9.99 - a virtual steal for this popular California Chardonnay. The Clos du Bois Chardonnay is a terrific everyday white wine at a reasonable price. On the palate, you'll find an abundance of tangy Granny Smith apple and D'Anjou pear along with a solid citrus-driven foundation, all folded in a creamy palate texture. This Chardonnay was fermented in a combination of both French and American Oak and underwent malolactic fermentation, both of which contribute significantly to the rich buttery finish.
